What's in our tour?
This Gaudi walking tour explores the work of the magical architect who single-handedly made Barcelona so unique – Antoni Gaudi, in the early 1900’s. It is our introduction to Barcelona.
The tour starts at “the apple of discord” – the famous corner where 3 houses compete as Barcelona’s greatest work. So which is best? You will have your own opinion, to be sure.
We explore “Passeig de Gracia,” where modern-day Barcelona first started, and we explore Eixample – the template district for the rest of our city – and we explore Gaudi’s main constructions – Casa Batlló, Casa Milà etc.
We also discuss the human stories behind each of these buildings – who commissioned each of these works and why, and what it’s like to live in these buildings. We discuss what Gaudi was trying to do – his “catalanity” philosophy.
To get to our finale, we ride the metro together – you get to try out our dependable, comfortable underground transportation system.
Our finale is Gaudi’s unfinished masterpiece and Barcelona’s main landmark, Sagrada Famila basilica.
- Gaudi’s La Pedrera – extravagant architecture for extravagant residents
- Trencadis: the mosaic Gaudi invented to transform the face of Barcelona
- ‘The world’s greatest house’ – ego, architecture and Star Wars
- ‘The Tapies foundation – a museum, and the world’s craziest roof-top
- Sagrada Familia – Gaudi’s ultimate, unfinished masterpiece
- Also included: a joyful metro ride
